2021 Season Update

Unique times call for a unique season at Maine State Music Theatre. For months, we have been struggling to find a safe way to present our shows to our faithful audience. In the midst of many challenges – social distance restrictions, limited timeline in the Pickard Theater, the high costs associated with Covid-19-related safety precautions (and lumber, steel, and fuel), to name only a few – we believe we have put together a plan that will reopen our beloved MSMT safely and bring you the entertainment you so richly deserve! As you might expect, there are some changes.

PAID subscribers: You will need to let us know by June 15  if you will be attending shows at Westbrook Performing Arts Center, and what you’d like to do with the value of the two shows we will no longer be producing. 

Main Stage Show Changes

One of the biggest changes to our updated plan is that we are only able to produce two main stage shows instead of four. Show dates for all our main stage shows have also changed. In addition, we will use a new venue for these two shows this season ONLY. The Westbrook Performing Arts Center in Westbrook, Maine will accommodate our main stage shows at later-than-usual dates. These later dates were necessitated by the Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings at the time of our planning. We cannot use Pickard Theatre during this later timeframe because students of Bowdoin College will be using it at that time.

September 1 – 19

September 29 – 17



Concert Series Changes

We are happy to announce that we will present all three of our Concert Series. These productions will take place at the Pickard Theater but on different dates than previously announced.

August 8 & 9

August 15 & 16

August 22 & 23


Theatre for Young Audiences Series Changes

We are happy to be able to still offer three Theatre for Young Audiences productions (Frozen has been changed to Alice in Wonderland, but don’t worry, we’ll bring Frozen back ASAP!) at the Pickard Theater in Brunswick EXCEPT Alice in Wonderland which will be presented at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center in Westbrook, Maine. This change of location is for the 2021 Season ONLY.

A few things you need to know:

  • The Box Office will be processing the new locations and dates and would prefer that you DO NOT CALL about your subscription at this time. Our staff needs time to reallocate to the new venue. THANK YOU!
  • New subscriptions and renewals for subscriptions are paused at this time to allow the Box Office to make the changes for current subscribers. We will update once we have a sale date for new subscriptions and renewals.
  • Single tickets will go on sale at a later date. We will update once we have a date for single tickets.
  • If you are a current subscriber, your normal MSMT Pickard Theater subscription seats WILL return to you  for the 2022 season (unless you state otherwise by the January 31, 2022 same seat deadline).
  • MSMT is following all national and state CDC guidelines for Covid-19.
